Detailed Product Description

Nebraska, University of Nebraska Press, 1981 reprint (1953). 262 pp, b/w illustrations. Paperback. Fine

The story of the millions of creatures who live in Norton Sound in Alaska, once the ice melts each summer. Sally Carrighar was a prolific writer of stories of the natural world. She has an almost magical ability to bring wild creatures to life with her literary renditions of their worldallowing us to get inside that world and live it briefly. In Icebound Summer, we are taken through a brief and intense arctic summer when seemingly frozen and lifeless tundra comes to life. From the arctic fox to the arctic terns overhead, we suddenly realize this is a place of surprisingly abundant life. Icebound Summer is one of the great outdoor classics of wildlife literature.

'In this 1953 volume, naturalist Carrighar recounts a summer she spent in the Arctic. Though brief, the season brings great change to the area, converting it into the 'polar' opposite of the frozen wasteland that most people imagine as wildlife abounds during the warmer months. This edition is illustrated with numerous black-and-white drawings.' - Michael Rogers, Library Journal.
